Senior Point to Point or the "Haigh Cup"

This is the least well known of the three race Club Championship series which includes the ever popular "Tinker Cup" and well known "Past Members 6",all of which are handicapped but the Championship is on an aggregate best time basis.

As point to point implies the race involves visiting points using your own route choice and the handicap is "open" i.e. set off at intervals in reverse order for a theoretical mass finish. Traditionally competitors had no need to worry if they strayed off the public footpath which meant pretty well anywhere but private land.

We are now restricted to roads and public footpaths. What constitutes a public footpath such as the Neiley Cliffe wood path or the many new paths being created by dog walkers? These are definitely not on the map but definitely in general use!

In the past points points had to be visited in a certain order but now it is up to you. Although utilising  roads only is within the rules it would be boring if that was the obvious best route and might even flag up road safety issues so the aim is always to select points which encourage off road route choices.

The next point to point race takes place on Tuesday 25th April 2017 and it would be great to have a good turnout.
